NAVDEEP VS JAGMEET
Breaking news out of Ottawa this weekend. It can be revealed that Innovation Minister Navdeep Bains' political future is closely tied to the fate of NDP leadership contender Jagmeet Singh's. In short, should Singh win the NDP leadership race in a few weeks, look for Bains to get an immediate high-profile bump up in the Trudeau Cabinet. This, according to Liberal insiders not unaccustomed to basting their backsides with Hawaiian Tropic on the docks at Harrington Lake, just to the north of what this weekend is an oppressively hot and sultry nation's Capital. But back to Bains, who it is whispered will likely accede to one of three key Ministries, whether Public Safety (with Goodale to DND), Transport (with Garneau to Treasury Board), or Treasury Board (with Brison demoted to Government House Leader). Add to that whispers overheard Friday at the nearby Chelsea Pub where a late-day table of ale-quaffers were discussing the fates of hapless Finance Minister Bill Morneau and the marginalized National Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan, both of whom it was said are operating way above their talents and are likely to be demoted in the next Cabinet shuffle. One astute member of the conversation, a familiar face to many in 'official Ottawa', suggesting that Sajjan would likely go to Veterans Affairs (he's a veteran, after all) and Morneau might actually leave elected office in a majestic flame-out for an Ambassadorial appointment to Dublin, Madrid, or Rome next spring (he is said to be addicted to Cacio e Pepe, the best of which can be found in Rome at Roma Sparita). Also in line for some type of demotion is conflict-challenged lifer Scott Brison, a Maritimer said to be way too close to certain East Coast billionaires, who is fast seeing his star eclipsed by the rise of ebullient Newfoundlander Seamus O'Regan, a Trudeau confidante who will likely be part of any upcoming Cabinet shuffle. Of note, and for the record, it can neither be confirmed or denied that the participants of this otherwise highly confidential conversation charged their nachos, chicken wings, deep fried calamari, and craft beer to their government accounts. Developing.
